Local couple team up

to help Hamilton kids

Chuck and Martha Fultz are looking
out for the students of HCHS
By Jo Ross
Students and parents in Hamilton County are
fortunate to have a pair of local "guardian angels"
watching over their children while at school. Local
S couple Chuck and Martha Fultz have accepted
supervisory positions in their respective fields to
deal with students' various needs:.
Although Martha is. employed by the Hamilton
County Public Health Unit, she works as the school


SEE LOCAL COUPLE, PAGE 2A


Chuck Fultz
Chuck Fultz, Athletic Director at
Hamilton County High School, is
thankful for the opportunity given
to him by Supt. Martha Butler and
the School Board. He looks forward
to working with the students and
staff at Hamilton County High
School and anticipates a great year
in sports.
"There's an air of hopefulness in the coaches
and players," he says.
He anticipates good community support and is
thankful for the new sports facilities.
"We have many talented athletes here and they
need our encouragement."] will continue to
improve and build on a program that already has
a good foundation. He invites the community to
come out tomorrow at 7:30. p.m. to see the
Trojans take on the Union County Tigers.



Martha Fultz
Newly appointed School Health
Nurse Supervisor Martha Fultz
says. "I'm excited about this
year. I believe we have
wonderful students in Hamilton
County. I know they are capable
of great things. Its our job to
ensure the health of these
children. As you know, if the student isn't healthy ...
they aren't teachable. With a nurse at every school
and the Doctor at the Student Health Center three
mornings a week, we are actively working to achieve
this goal. Our yearly screenings detect problems that
would impede the learning process. The social worker
mentors students facing various obstacles in their
lives. This is something we didn't have when I was in
school and is much needed now. I really get paid to
feel good ... because I have a job that's great and I get
much more than I could ever give." - Photos: Jo Ross

told the Jasper News. "Many of our
.parents can't attend school functions,
so I wanted to take the classroom to
Ihe kids. I want to put books into the
hands of our children so they can
learn the joy of reading."


As for the cost of the project, it was
minimal.
"I used a surplus bus and inmate
labor to paint it," Butler said.
"Luckily, we had an inmate who was
the designer and artist for all the
painting. The only cost incurred was
the cost for the paint."


Currently, surplus books, craft
supplies and anything else that
anyone is willing to donate is being
collected for.use on the bus. Butler
has enlisted local elected officials,
churches, and businesses to help
stock the bus - and join in on the rides
as well.


"My staff has saved their hotel
soaps, shampoos and conditioners
that we will have available for the
pastors to distribute," she said.
Anyone wishing to make a
contribution to this effort is encouraged
to contact the School Board office for
more information.

SOME PLANTS ARE JUST MORE FUN TO GROW!
A few that come to mind are tomatoes for that vine ripe taste, Sunflowers for the
tall stalks and huge flowers and citrus. There's something about growing your #1 Meyers
own lemons and oranges that's just way cool. It might be because we are Lemon
outsmarting the weather with cold tolerant varieties. Maybe it's the thrill of
picking and eating them right off the tree. What ever your reason, now is a great *15.99
time to plant. Stop in and let us help you pick out just the right tree for you.
Choose from Satsuma, Kumquat, Grapefruit and Lemon.

encouraged more out-

those who hke to take
7 T their earlY morning
. alks and bike rides.
.;' i iq These early summer
morning outings, before the heat hits you, are a great
way to get out, get some exercise and be reminded
that life in White Springs can be very active and in-
teresting. There is so much going on here that one
never need be bored. It was good to see Roselle
Brantly out riding her bike again. Roselle recently
had leg surgery and is recovering nicely.
Recently we visited with John and Roberta Lace-
field at their wonderful Lacefield Farms out the
Woodpecker route. Their "spread" is getting more
and more organized and "cultivated", in the farming
sense of the word. It won't be long before some de-
licious organic treats will be making their way to the
market. This area is lucky to have entrepreneuring


folks like the Lacefields settling in here.
It's that time of year when folks are tra\elmg quite
a bit. white e Springs residents Dennis and Dottie
Price ha\e iust returned from a three week visit to
their summer retreat in Newfoundland. Canada.
\VWhle there, the\ were visited by former \lhite
Springs residents Eric and Becky Larsen and their
sons Bobby and Spencer. The Prices and the Larsens
enjoyed hiking, climbing the seashore cliffs. fishing
in the north Atlantic for codfish, whale watching
while dodging icebergs, sightseeing and most of all
enjoying the wonderful hospitality of the New-
foundlanders.
Another pair of travelers, Khrys Kantarze and Deb
Odom have just returned to White Springs from a
trip out west which included a visit to the spectacu-
lar Grand Canyon and to Khrys's parents in Sunny
Arizona to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.
Khrys and Deb do so much for this community and
are much appreciated. Welcome home.

Guiding Good Choices


In Memory of

David P. Baker
11/1/1940 to 8/31/2008















Unseen and unheard by others
The memory of you and I...together
Interrupts my hectic day and holds me still...
for the moment.
And as I reflect and cherish those memories
I realize all over again how very much in love with ;
you...I shall always be.
And if I had a flower for everytime I thought of you... ,
I could walk in our garden...forever.
I miss you greatly my love.
All of us that know ydu, have been so blessed to have
held you in our lives...then...and now.
You can never be forgotten my love nor replaced...
for there is none like you...no, not one.

Love always, your Ms. Shirley, family & friends

Survey Shows Top
Florida Finesfor
School Zone
Speeders

The average cost of a
speeding ticket in a
Florida school zone is
$297 for drivers topping
the speed limit by 10
miles per hour or more.
This is according to All-
state Insurance Compa-
ny's back to school safe-
ty survey of 67 law en-
forcement departments
and municipal courts
across the Sunshine
State.
Officers and deputies
are looking for more
than just speeders in
school zones as kids
head back to the class-
room. Other common in-
fractions include failure
to yield to pedestrians in
a crosswalk, failure to
stop for a school bus,
and seat belt violations.
"Getting caught
speeding in a school
zone could cost you, not
only in fines, but could
also impact your driving
record which could ulti-
mately affect your insur-
ance rates." said Mike
Sheely, Field Vice Presi-
dent, Florida Region.
"But more importantly,
we are asking drivers to
slow down and pay
cose attention in school
zones for the safety of
our children."

Five School Zone
Traffic Tips
1. Drive slowly
and carefully in school
zones. Watch for chil-
dren walking in streets.


2. Hang up the
phone and focus on the
road.
3. Be alert and pa-
tient around school bus-
es and bus stops.
4. Use caution
around crosswalks and
s obey crossing guards
and traffic signals.
5. Even if you
don't have children,
learn the school zones on
your daily routes.

Photo by Donna Beauchamp
The Hamilton County High School Lady Trojans
volleyball team is getting geared up for their up-
coming season. Under the instruction of the varsity
coach, Hannah Perez, and junior varsity coach, Kim
Fenneman, the Lady Trojans will meet Columbia
County next Tuesday, September 1st, at HCHS. JV
begins at 5:00 p.m. and Varsity will follow at 6:00
p.m.


School Board Policy 4.01 establishes the Student
Progress Plan for Hamilton District Schools. The
plan is comprehensive and in part relates to student
performance standards, promotion, retention and
graduation requirements. The Student Progression
Plan is available for review at the district office, on
the school district web site (www.hamiltonfl.com),
and at each school site. Student promotion is based
on evaluation of student achievement in terms of
appropriate instructional goals. Grade promotion
is categorized K-5, 6-8, and 9-12:
K-5 Promotion: Shall include passing grades in at
least four subjects to include reading/language arts
and mathematics. Mandatory retention is exercised
at grade 3 if a student's reading proficiency is not
Level 2 or above on the Sunshine State Standards
section of the FCAT. Students may be exempt from
grade 3 retention with specified "good cause" rea-
sons.
6-8 Promotion: Students in grades 6 and 7 must
receive passing grades in at least three of the four

ing the next school year. Students in grade 8 must
meet the provisions of the states A++ plan.
The final promotion decision for students in
grades K-8 (with the exception of grade 3 and 8 stu-
dents) rests with the principal after evaluation of all
pertinent educational records for the student.

end of the school year based on credits earned and
grade point averages (GPA):
Grade 8 to Grade 9: Promoted from grade 8 us-

motion criteria rests with the high school principal.

UF-developed site to help improve physical fitness in kids


Surrounded by Gov. Charlie Crist and star athletes
such as former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Derrick
Brooks and tennis star Jennifer Capriati, state leaders
unveiled a UF-developed Web site aimed at increas-
ing physical activity in children.
UF informatics specialists teamed with the state
Department of Health, Crist and other agencies to
expand and improve the Web site for the Governor's
Fitness Challenge, an eight-week program that al-
lows children and schools to earn awards and recog-
nition for their progress and involvement in physical
activities.
The interactive site made its debut at the Gover-
nor's Council on Physical Fitness meeting in Tampa.
Complete with online tools, statistics and even
healthy recipes from star chef Emeril Lagasse, the
new and improved Governor's Fitness Challenge
Web site should allow more children than ever to
participate in the program, says Narayan Raum, as-
sistant informatics manager for the UF Clinical and
Translational Research Informatics Program in the
College of Medicine department of epidemiology
and health policy research.
"To actually be involved in a project that could po-
tentially help a lot of kids get even just an extra 10
minutes of exercise a day is very exciting," said
Raum, whose team developed the site. "With the


overall positive impact this could have on many chil-
dren, there is nothing to lose here. Even if 10 kids get
healthier because they were involved, it makes it
worthwhile."
Prior to the new site, students and schools had to
send foims and written charts of activity to the state
in order to participate. Now, children and teachers
can log in to the Web site, where they can track their
time and even view live statistics. For example, once
this year's program starts, the top five schools with
the highest levels of participation will be listed on
the site. Because schools are competing for end-of-
year monetary prizes, these statistics could spur a lit-
tle friendly competition and get more schools in-
volved, Raum said.
The program starts Sept. 1 for elementary schools
and Nov. 18 for middle schools. Although the chal-
lenge is school-based, home-schooled children and
students in schools that do not participate can take
part in the program, too.
The state received funding from the AT&T Foun-
dation to remodel the site. UF's Clinical and Trans-
lational Research Informatics Program software en-
gineering specialists were hired to reconfigure the
site and develop a database for-program statistics.
The team, led.by project manager Erik Henrikson,
began developing the site in January.

UF Researchers to study weight
management program for children
through IFAS Cooperative
Extension in Hamilton County


This fall researchers at
the University of Florida
will begin a study exam-
ining a weight manage-
ment treatment program
for children and their
parents in Hamilton
County, as well as other
rural counties in North
Central Florida.
The Extension Family
Lifestyle Intervention
Project for Kids, or E-
FLIP for Kids, is de-
signed to help children
and parents improve
their diet and physical
activity to promote posi-
tive self-image and bet-
ter weight management.
The no-cost program
helps families work to-
gether to learn how to
manage real-life prob-
lems and make gradual
changes in their
lifestyles. The study is a
joint effort between re-
searchers at the Health
Science Center and IFAS
Extension at UF. For res-
idents in Hamilton
County, all treatment
contacts for this no-cost
program will be held at
the Hamilton Coopera-
tive Extension Service
office in Jasper.
E-FLIP for Kidsis led
by David Janicke, Ph.D.,
and is supported by a
grant from the National
Institute of Diabetes &
Digestive & Kidney Dis-
orders.
"Rates of childhood
obesity are higher in
rural areas than non-
rural areas," said Jan-
icke, an assistant profes-
sor of clinical and health
psychology in the Col-
lege of Public Health
and Health Professions.
"We have received a
number of requests
from families and physi-
cians regarding treat-
ment programs for chil-
dren who are over-
weight or obese in these
areas. Unfortunately,
easily accessible options
for this type of treat-
ment are hard to find in
rural areas, This study
can benefit families en-


rolled in rural areas by
providing an option for
the treatment of obesity
and associated health
problems that is avail-
able in their local com-
munities."
The E-FLIP for Kids
program will compare
family-based group
treatment programs ver-
sus a treatment program
in which only the par-
ent(s) attend group
treatment meetings. The
programs are designed
to help children estab-
lish healthier weight sta-
tus, as well as healthier
eating and exercise
habits. The treatment
programs last one-year,
but families will also be
followed for 12 months
after treatment ends to
assess the long-term im-
pact of the treatments.
E-FLIP for Kids is
available to children be-
tween the ages of 8 and
12, and their parents,
who live in participating
rural counties, which in-
cludes Hamilton Coun-
ty. To participate, chil-
dren must have a parent
or legal guardian who is
willing to attend group
treatment sessions that
will occur once per
week during the first
few months of the pro-
gram, but will decline in
frequency to once a
month at the end of the
program All treatment
visits will be held'at lo-
cal Cooperative Exten-
sion offices in participat-
ing counties. Families
will be given $10 per
treatment session to
compensate them for
travel costs. Screening
visits for the study will
begin in October, with
the treatment programs
begin in January of
2010. Families interest-
ed in signing up for the
program or who have
questions should call
the E-FLIP for Kids of-
fice toll free at 1-866-
673-9623. The E-FLIP
for Kids team is taking
calls now.

Greater Poplar Springs Educational Awards Day


By Paula Williams

The 2009 Educational Awards Day
was held at Greater Poplar Springs
Baptist Church on Sunday. This is a
time set aside each year to recognize
the academic achievements of children
and others at Greater Poplar Springs.
Pastor Simon and the church family
looks forward to this program yearly
and we constantly encourage our chil-
dren to do more and more. Today we
salute them!
Chris Merine was the presiding offi-
cer and she navigated the group
through the program. Charles Combs
and Quinton Miller were in charge of
the devotion and the church's youth
choir was in charge of the song service.
JaRon Weatherspoon welcomed the
group and was followed by Bria'
Davis who introduced the speaker.
Raven Weise, Miss Hamilton County
High was the speaker and she really
"brought a word." Her topic was En-
courage Yourself. After reading the
scripture she focused on three words:
encourage, confidence and obstacle.
After singing the popular selection
"Encourage Yourself accompanied by
Steven Troy, she told the group how
important it is to encourage yourself.
"Mama and Daddy can pray for you
and others too but you need to learn
how to pray for yourself. When there
is no one else you need to know how
to encourage yourself. Have confi-
dence and know who you are in the
Lord. It does not matter if others have
counted you out and think there is no
more good left, pay that no mind and
have confidence in yourself. There
will be many obstacles but you have to
develop a plan, encourage yourself,
have confidence and tell obstacles to
move out of your way. As we start
school this week, remember to plan
now to encourage yourselves to do
your best." Raven was awesome and
the congregation was really touched
by the word delivered through this
young lady. After presentations by
chairpersons Jackie Houston and Mary
Nell Bryant, Cameron Hawkins recog-
nized visitors, Angela Brinson deliv-
ered announcements and Regina Car-
son was just the little girl who thanked
everyone. Closing re-
marks were extended by
Jackie' HoustOn and Pas-
tor Billy Simon. After
service, dinner was en-
joyed by all.
The recipient of the
Francis Brookins, Georgia
A. Kaigler and Vinetta

Florida Fish Busters Bulletin August 2009 FWC extends timeline for new

Expand your horizons with freshwater rules on imperiled species listing
fishes, turtles, frogs, crayfish and mollusks


Although Florida requires anyone be-
tween the ages of 16 and 65 to purchase
a recreational freshwater fishing license,
there are animals you can take recre-
ationally, without a license, from fresh
- water for consumption or to use as bait,
provided you know and follow the rules.
Obtaining a recreational freshwater
fishing license is easy just call 888-FISH
FLORIDA, or visit MyFWC.com/Li-
cense. The license is a great value.
However, what about taking turtles;
frogs; crustaceans, such as crayfish and
grass shrimp; and mollusks, such as
mussels and dams? To take these species
recreationally or for personal use, you do
not need a fishing license. However, it is
very important to understand that spe-
cific regulations apply. People must
have a commercial fishing license or
Class HI exhibition and sale license to sell
some of these species.
Recent reports of large harvests of sev-
eral.species of freshwater turtles, pro-
moted by demand in Asian and other
foreign markets, caused the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) to prohibit all commercial take or
sale of wild native freshwater turtles, of
which there are 18 species in Florida.
State law prohibits harvesting alligator
snapping turtles and regular snapping
turtles, Barbour"s and Escambia map
turtles, and cooters. Other freshwater
turtles (chiefly softshell turtles) are re-
stricted to one.per person per day for
personal use. They are typically caught
by hand, dip net, minnow seine or baited
hook and used for human consumption.
These flattened looking turtles with
leathery shells can inflict a painful bite
and have sharp daws, so be careful if
you choose to harvest one.
Red-eared sliders are a common non-
native freshwater turtle in Florida's wa-
ters, but people cannot catch them to
keep as pets. While red-eared sliders can
be taken and used for human consump-
tion; once captured, they cannot be re-
leased back into Florida's waters.
Among the most common frogs taken
for consumption are pig frogs and bull-
frogs. There are no seasons, bag or size
limits. Most people use gigs at night to
hunt them. (Some specific areas prohibit
this, so checK the local regulations.) Sale
of frogs or frog legs requires a commer-
cial fishing license.
Mollusks, which include mussels and
dams, are filter feeders and live on or in
the sand at the bottom of rivers and

As I see it


By FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto

Creative teamwork is the key to conservation
How do you gather the information necessary
to make informed management decisions when
your area of responsibility covers approximately
5.8 million acres of land and almost 6,000 square
miles of water? Well, if you are the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC),
not only do you depend on a well-trained and
dedicated staff, you also form a variety of part-
nerships, coordinate with a network of volun-
teers and depend on the voluntary efforts of
Florida's residents and visitors. Conserving and
protecting Florida's fish and wildlife can be a
daunting task; one that is bigger than just one
agency.
Collaboration is a concept that extends
throughout the FWC. Agency staff members reg-
ularly cross internal lines to form teams. Bringing
the agency's best expertise together helps the
S FWC more effectively address the conservation
challenges that face our state.
This collaborative approach goes beyond the
internal procedures of the FWC. To help accom-
plish common goals, the FWC forms and sus-
tains relationships with outside entities and indi-
viduals. While the reason for collaborating may
often be quite dear, sometimes creativity plays a
role in aligning the FWC with another group or
individual to focus on a conservation issue.
.At the FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research Insti-
tute (FWRI), the research arm of the agency, sci-
entists understand the importance of developing
creative partnerships and working with the pub-
lic to leverage their reach. Whether for land, ma-
rine or freshwater -based research, scientists pur-
sue a variety of opportunities to form collabora-
tive relationships. Linking FWRI's research ex-
pertise with private sector businesses, non-gov-
ernmental organizations arid public entities helps
accomplish goals that benefit all those involved.
With a study area the size of Florida, it isn't too
surprising that FWRI researchers conducting
surveillance for avian influenza in wild bird pop-
ulations have incorporated public participation
into their work. As it is in everyone's best interest
to collect the information necessary to monitor
for the disease effectively, citizens readily report
their observations of dead birds through the
agency's online reporting system at
MyFWC.com/bird. Ih addition, many of Flori-
da's hunters voluntarily participate by allowing
scientists to collect samples from the ducks they
harvest.
The size of the study area is also a challenge
when you consider the vastness of Fl6rida's ma-


lakes. Certain species of freshwater mus-
sels may be collected for personal use.
However, federal laws protect seven
Florida mussel species that occur from
the Suwannee River system north and
west throughout the Panhandle. Possess-
ing or disturbing these protected species
can result in substantial penalties, so be
sure to do your research first. The daily
bag limit for unprotected mussels, such
as Florida spiney spike and paper pond-
shell varieties, is 10 per person (or 20 half
shells), and they can only be taken by
handpicking. Freshwater mussels may
not be sold. Species of freshwater mus-
sels from families other than Unionidae
or Margaritferidae, such as the Asian
dam, have no daily bag or possession
limits and are often taken for bait. People
,remove the tough body from the shell
and place it on a bait-holder style hook..
There are more than 50 species of
freshwater crayfish in Florida; many are
imperiled and may not be taken. How-
ever, there are no seasons, gear, bag or
size limits on the more abundant "craw-
dads". These critters look like little lob-
sters and are sometimes taken with small
traps or dip nets, for use as bait or for
consumption in things such as Cajun
stews or Creole recipes. Red swamp and
white river crayfish are the most com-
mon species used for these purposes.
They are found in ditches and vegetated
areas with dear water and often around
algae-covered rocks. Traps are baited
with abundant amounts of fresh or
frozen fish parts, not spoiled. Leaving
the trap overnight is normally important,
but remember to tag it with your name
and address and be sure it is placed
legally and safely. Red swamp and
white river crayfish are listed as condi-
tional species, so while they may be per-
sonally used for human consumption,
they may not be kept alive or sold with-
out special permits.
Getting outdoors and learning about
nature is a great way to have fun, get ex-
ercise, and get away from the stress of
everyday life. To learn more and to check
local rules visit MyFWC.com.

tors by calling *FWC or #FWC on your

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) met
with stakeholders on
Tuesday to seek assis-
tance with the proposed
draft rules for Florida's
imperiled species listing
process. After listening
all day to members of
environmental groups,
recreationists, develop-
ers and staff from other
government entities, the
FWC decided to take
more time to work on
the new process, which
will include a compre-
hensive management
system for those species
that are in danger of go-
ing extinct.
Originally, FWC staff
planned to present draft
rules to the Commission
on Sept. 9 at its quarterly
the meeting in Howey-
in-the-Hills. However,
after the stakeholder
meeting, it was decided
to hold more public and
stakeholder meetings.
Staff will make a presen-
tation at September's
meeting and then bring
draft rules to the Com-
mission for considera-


rine and coastal waters. Given this challenge and
the need to enhance their sampling coverage,
FWRI scientists established the volunteer-based
Red Tide Offshore Monitoring Program. The
programs purpose is to help monitor and detect
red tide and other harmful algal blooms in Flori-
da_s waters. Scientists rely on volunteers of all
kinds; charter boat captains, commercial fisher-
men, private citizens, divers and more to collect
water samples from offshore areas by boat. This
program provides increased coverage of the Gulf
of Mexico and enables the potential for early
warning of offshore algal blooms.
As citizen scientists, FWC's volunteers and
partners not only contribute to science, but also
learn from their experiences. This is especially
true in the FWC's collaboration with SCUBA-
nauts International, a youth education organiza-
tion. This summer, Dr. David Palandro, an FWRI
research scientist who volunteers as Chief Scien-
tist for SCUBAnauts International, accompanied
some of the group's students to Key Largo to par-
ticipate in a coral reef research project. Working
hand in hand with scientists from the FWC and
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Admiinis-
tration, the students made a discovery that was
the first of its kind. The students documented the
spawning of farm-raised staghom coral that had
been transplanted in the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary, proving that the transplanted
coral is doing well. The students described the
experience as "a great honor" and "awesome"
and discussed how they would share what they
had learned when they returned to school.
Sometimes volunteers walk away from assist-
ing a research project with more than just the sat-
isfaction of helping out and gaining a better un-
derstanding of the science. Sometimes volunteers
can benefit from an additional incentive. This
was the case this past year for anglers fishing in
Lake Griffin. Anglers fishing this lake had the op-
portunity to assist biologists with the research
necessary to manage the black crappie fishery. In
doing so, anglers also had the chance to receive a
monetary reward. As part of the study, FWRI sci-
entists placed tags on hundreds of fish in the
lake. Each tag was marked with a monetary val-
ue. Anglers who caught the tagged fish provided
details about their catch and in return received
the assigned reward.
Creative collaboration enhances the FWC's
ability to gather the information needed to form
sound management decisions for the conserva-
tion of Florida's fish and wildlife. We hope you
will consider how you can become involved. To

projects, visit http:/ /research.MyFWC.com


tion at its December
meeting in Clewiston.
"Our stakeholders
told us they supported
what we were doing, but
they felt it needs a little
more work and that it
was important to pre-
sent a rule to the Com-
mission that everyone
could support," said Dr.
Elsa Haubold, the leader
of FWC's imperiled
species team. "We all
have the same goal and
that is to conserve
wildlife in Florida."
A team of FWC em-
ployees has been work-
ing on draft rules to cre-
ate a comprehensive

which will identify
species that need state
intervention, for sur-

to science, while using a
balanced approach
through collaboration
and partnerships.

No evidence of chronic

wasting disease found in

Florida white-tailed deer


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
has not found any evidence of
chroniewasting disease (CWD) af-
ter extensive testing of the state's
white-tailed deer population.
The FWC tested 582 free-rang-
ing deer during the past year and
more than 4,000 deer during the
past seven years, with no CWD-
positive results.'
"While we can never say that
Florida is entirely free of the dis-
ease without testing every deer,
this sample size gives us confi-
dence that if CWD is present in
Florida, it is at low levels," Dr.
Mark Cunningham, FWC's
wildlife veterinarian, said. "How-
ever, even low numbers of CWD-
positive deer would be cause for
concern, so we plan to continue
testing for the foreseeable future."
CWD is a contagious neurologi-
cal disease that has been found in
captive and wild mule deer,
white-tailed deer, moose and
Rocky Mountain elk within sever-
al midwestem and western states.
The disease causes degeneration
of the brains of infected animals,
resulting in emaciation, abnormal
behavior, loss of bodily functions
and death.
Thus far, no southeastern state,
including Florida, has been hit by
the deer disease.
To reduce the chances of CWD
entering Florida, the state pro-
hibits importing live deer unless
they come from a herd that has
been certified CWD-free for five or
more years and carcasses of any
species of deer, elk or moose from
15 states and two Canadian
provinces where CWD has been
detected.
Chronic wasting disease has
been detected in New Mexico,
Utah, Colorado, Wyoming,


Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma,
Montana, South Dakota, Nebras-
ka, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York,
West Virginia, Michigan and Al-
berta and Saskatchewan, Canada.
Visit the CWD Alliance Web site at
www.cwd-info.org/ for the most
up-to-date CWD reporting.
"Early detection is the key to
limiting the spread of the disease,
if such an outbreak should occur
in Florida," Cunningham said.
Once again, this hunting season,
the FWC is turning to hunters and
members of the public for assis-
tance in helping monitor the
state's deer herd for CWD.
"We're asking hunters to report
any sightings of sick or emaciated
deer, or deer dead of unknown
causes," Cunningham said. "If
you see such a deer, call toll-free
866-CWD-WATCH (293-9282).
Please do not handle the deer.
Wildlife biologists will respond,
and if necessary, collect deer tissue
for testing. It's important to con-
tact us as soon as possible, because
sample collection must take place
within 48 hours of a deer's death
to yield reliable results."
CWD WATCH is part of an ag-
gressive monitoring program to
ensure CWD is not already in
Florida and the disease does not
spread into this state.
There is no evidence that CWD
poses a risk for humans, however,
public health officials recommend
avoiding direct contact with any
sick-looking deer or one that has
died from unknown causes.
More information about CWD
surveillance in Florida is available
atMyFWC.com/CWD. The Web
site also offers links to wildlife and
health agencies with more in-
depth information about the dis-
ease.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 27, 200 ,


In the past two years, the newspaper business has faced unprecedented challenges, but make no mistake:
newspaper media - print and digital - remains strong and will emerge from the current environment an even stronger multi-platform force.


Number of adults who read a print
newspaper every day, more than
115 million on Sunday. That's more
than the Super Bowl (94 million),
Ameriqan Idol (23 million) or the
average late local news (65 million.)


61%
18-24 year olds
and 25-34 year
olds who read
a newspaper
in an average
week. 65'% of
everyone in those
age groups read
a newspaper
or visited a
newspaper
website
that week.


40%
Households with
unique visitors
to newspaper
websites in an
average month.


56%
According
to Google,
percentage of
consumers that
have researched
or purchased
products
they saw in a
newspaper.


52%
* Percentage of
people who are
more likely to buy
*a product if it is
seen in the.paper.


TONS
Number of
creative options
for advertisers
choosing to utilize
the newspaper.
From belly bands,
polybags, post-it
notes, scented
ads, taste-it ads,
glow-in-the-dark
and temporary
tattoos, as
well as event
and database
marketing,
behavioral
targeting,
e-mail blasts,
e-newsletters
and more.


MOST
Newspapers make a
larger investment in
journalism than any
other medium.
Most of the
information you
already read from
"aggregators"
and other media
originated with
newspapers.
No amount of
effort from local
bloggers, non-profit
news entities or
TV news sources
could match the
depth and breadth
of newspaper-
produced content.


This is not a portrait of a dying industry. It's illustrative of transformation. Newspapers are reinventing themselves to focus on serving distinct audiences
with a variety of products, and delivering those audiences effectively to advertisers across media channels.

One of the first things many people notice about other people is their smile. A
beautiful smile can make a strong first impression and boost an individual's confidence
as well.
But as strong an impression as a beautiful smile can make, the breath behind that
smile is equally important. Bad breath, for example, can quickly negate a good smile,
no matter how beautiful it is. While what you eat plays a role in whether or not you
have bad breath, other factors influence how your breath smells as well.
Lifestyle Habits"
Certain lifestyle habits strongly influence an individual's breath. People who do not
brush or floss daily, for instance, are far (nore likely to have bad breath. That's because
food particles remain in the teeth after eating, promoting the growth of bacteria
between teeth, on the tongue and around the gums. That bacterial growth results in
bad breath.
Another factor that contributes to bad breath is smoking or chewing tobacco.
Tobacco-based products are very detrimental to a person's oral hygiene, causing bad
breath but potentially contributing to gum irritation, stained teeth and a reduced ability
to taste foods as well.
Individual Health
Bad breath isn't always a reflection of a person's diet or lifestyle choices. Sometimes
bad breath might be indicative of a larger issue such as gum disease. As plaque builds
up on the teeth, the resulting bacteria cause toxins to form in the mouth. Those toxins
irritate the gums. While gum irritation is often painful enough, allowing it to go
untreated can result in worse problems, including damage to the jawbone.
Other ailments can contribute to bad Dreath as well. In addition to diabetes, liver or
kidney problems can contribute to bad breath, as can chronic respiratory problems
such as bronchitis or pneumonia Acid reflux can also contribute to bad breath.
Prevention
While there's no guaranteed way to banish bad breath forever, there are ways to
reduce or prevent it.
' Stop smoking. Smokers or people who chew tobacco can greatly reduce their risk for
bad breath by quitting. While that's easier said than done, it's as close to a guarantee
to reducing bad breath as smokers will find.
" Stay hydrated. Dry mouth often results in bad breath, so staying hydrated by drinking
lots of water can reduce bad breath. Also, chewing sugarless gum can stimulate the
production of saliva, helping to keep the mouth moist in the process.
" Visit the dentist. Many people fear the dentist's chair, but visiting the dentist at least
twice a year can greatly reduce the rsk of bad breath. A dentist can give a thorough
cleaning and will be able to monitor and detect the common problems that contribute
to bad breath, such as gum disease or dry mouth.
' Remember Mom and Dad's advice. Mom and Dad always said to brush twice per day.
and floss after meals, and that advice is as true today as if was back then. In addition
to brushing your teeth, brush your tongue as well. And be sure to replace your
toothbrush every 2 to 3 months, or when it begins to look frayed, whichever comes
first.

Sr., who was featured in the 2007 PBS documentary


entitled "Mr. Dial Has Something to Say," and has had
solo exhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum (NY,
NY) and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (Houston, TX).
Jane Simpson, Visual Arts Director at the Colquitt Arts
Center (Moultrie, GA) will give a gallery talk on Friday,
August 28 at 6:30pm. The opening reception is from 6-

UF vets treat life-threatening




vascular infection in horses


Two horses at risk for life-threatening
bleeding caused by an uncommon
infection of the internal carotid artery
were successfully treated recently by
University of Florida veterinarians who
used cutting-edge technology to resolve
the problem faster and less invasively
than traditional surgery would allow.
"The problem both of these horses had
involved a disease called guttural pouch
mycosis, or a fungal infection in the
guttural pouch," said Herb
Maisenbacher, V.M.D., an assistant
clinical professor of cardiology at UF's
Veterinary Medical Center. "The
infection can eat its way through.the
tissues in the back of the throat,
potentially rupturing the arteries."
Typical symptoms include bleeding
from the nose, Maisenbacher said. UF
veterinarians treated the first horse in
October 2008, and the second in May.
"One horse's red blood cell count was
actually dropping because of the
bleeding," he said. "The other had just
one nose bleed. The owners knew they










'' 1 ;




*- ,' .

1 7F ** , ; ' .


needed to do something before it became
life-threatening."
Lynne Kimball-Davis of Wellington
recalled the late October morning when
she went to feed her horse, a Dutch
warmblood named Upper Class, and
discovered him in his stall bleeding
profusely from the nose:
"It looked like he had been
massacred," she said.
Kimball-Davis rushed her horse to
Palm Beach Equine Clinic, where
veterinarians determined a referral to UF
was necessary.
"He was stabilized for two days and
then Sunday morning, we got him up to
Dr. (David) Freeman," Kimball-Davis
said.
She added that Upper Class returned
home after about a week at UF, and has
made steady progress since then.
"I'm getting ready to show him in the
fall again," she said. "Everyone has told
me he's perfectly fine now and not to
give his problem a second thought."
Freeman, an equine surgeon,


collaborated with Maisenbacher's
cardiology team to treat both cases. In
each case, a device known as a vascular
plug was inserted to occlude the at-risk
artery. Before that, surgeons access the
carotid artery through a small incision in
the neck and use a contrast agent to find
the damaged vessels before blocking
them off.
"The affected area is difficult to
approach surgically, but it's been done
before," Maisenbacher said. "Another
approach has been to place multiple
metallic coils inside the vessel to block
the flow of blood. What made our
approach unique is that we were able to
make the procedure go more smoothly
by using newer devices to achieve the
same result."
Freeman, who has used all the various
treatments, favors the new approach.
"The minimally invasive introduction.
of nitinol plugs seems the best to me,"
he said. "It's also a nice example of
teamwork between the small and large
animal hospitals that allows us to make


use of leading-edge technologies that
benefit many species."
Maisenbacher said the vascular plugs
are made for use in human medicine, and
are believed to have only been used at
Purdue University's veterinary.school to
treat gutteral pouch mycosis in horses.
Because of the success UF has had in
treating dogs with the devices,
Maisenbacher felt a similar result might
be achieved in horses.
"Once the animals wake up from
anesthesia, they are almost back to'their
normal selves," he said. "The other
advantage is that the devices offer the
ability to access vessels that by
traditional methods are very difficult to
get to. Plus, there really is no other
medical treatment for this condition."
The procedure takes between two and
three hours, he added.
Anyone seeking more information
about UF's Veterinary Medical Center
and treatments currently available for
pets and horses should call 352-392-
2213 or visit www.vetmed.ufl.edu.

Web site to help improve physical fitness in kids


By April Frawley Birdwell
Surrounded by Gov. Charlie Crist and star athletes such
as former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Derrick Brooks and
tennis star Jennifer Capriati, state leaders recently
unveiled a UF-developed Web site aimed at increasing
physical activity in children.-.
UF informatics specialists teamed with the state
Department of Health, Crist and.other agencies to expand
and improve the Web site for the Governor's Fitness
Challenge, an eight-week program that.allows children
and schools to earn awards and recognition for their
progress and involvement in physical activities.
The interactive site made its debut at the Governor's
Council on Physical Fitness meeting in Tampa.
Complete with online tools, statistics and even healthy
recipes from star chef Emeril Lagasse, the new and
improved Governor's Fitness Challenge Web site should
allow-more children than ever to participate in the
program, says Narayan Raum, assistant informatics
manager for the UF Clinical and Translational Research
Informatics Program in the College of Medicine
department of epidemiology and health policy research.
'To actually be involved in a project that could
potentially help a lot of kids get even just an extra 10


minutes of exercise a day is very exciting," said Raum,
whose team developed the site. "With the overall positive
impact this dould have on many children, there is nothing
to lose here. Even if 10 kids get healthier because they
were involved, it makes it worthwhile."
Before the new site, students and schools had to send
forms and written charts of activity to the state in order to
participate. Now, children and teachers can log in to the
Web site, where they can track their time and even view
live statistics. For example, once this year's program
starts, the top five schools with the highest levels of
participation will be listed on the site. Because schools
are competing for end-of-year monetary prizes, these
statistics could spur a little friendly competition and get
more schools involved, Raum said.
The program starts Sept. 1 for elementary schools and
Nov. 18 for middle schools. Although the challenge is
school-based, homeschooled children and students in
schools that do not participate can take part in the
program, too.
The state received funding from the AT&T Foundation
to remodel the site. UF's Clinical and Translational
Research Informatics Program software engineering
specialists were hired to reconfigure the site and develop


a database for program statistics. The team, led by project
manager Erik Henrikson, began developing the site in
January.
